Alexander - Week 1
January 10-16, 2004

I was born on January 10, 2004 at 7:31am.  I only put my mom through 10.5 hours of labor from start to finish.  Although, I did interrupt my dad's clinic party when I broke the sac of water that I had been living in for 40 weeks.  My dad hoped that I would arrive on his birthday, but I decided to give him his birthday present 2 days early.
